Description: LAL Vs SAC Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Lakers set to massively shuffle their side in today’s impending skirmish
The Lakers couldn’t have curtailed their three game losing spin in more dramatic fashion. Taking their encounter against Denver Nuggets all the way down the buzzer, the Lakers managed to come out top right at the end with Kyle Kuzma showing what he’s worth with the side’s winner.
The clutch performance from Kuzma was a much needed showing from him with the player finally showing his mettle with a game winning display. The performance could not only be a defining moment for him but his side as well with the player helping bolster the side’s repertoire ahead of the impending playoffs.
The West5ern Conference leaders will be looking to come up with a spitting image of that resilient display when they step out to take on Sacramento Kings today. A win today would see the side close out the seeding round with a respectable 4-4 record and with it garner much needed momentum ahead of the all important stage of the marquee league.
LAL Vs SAC Dream11 Probable Winner
However, a win won’t be the easiest of proposition for the Lakers today. The side is set to rest a bevy of names with the playoffs approaching, a discourse which will leave the side with a massively watered down setup.
Elsewhere, with Sacramento Kings out of the league, the club will be looking to approach this one with everything they have got. A win against the Lakers would help provide some kind of solace to another bereaved season with, a narrative set to spur the Kings on today.
We envision them being buoyed today to go onto register their fourth win in a row in the conference.

Dream 11 Picks
Although LeBron James will be largely held back today, we envision him playing against half of the contest. With Davis questionable and Caruso out, the Lakers will need to rely on James to do a bunch of the scoring and setting up of the layups for the side.
With 26.3 ppg, he’s someone we just can’t leave out of our side today. Sacramento Kings meanwhile will see us out for point guard Corey Joseph with the player utilising his nous of abilities to control the centre of the court for the side.
Kings’ top scorer with 20 ppg, Bogdan Bogdanovic has been crucial to resorting some pride for the club since the league’s return. His enigmatic performances have seen euphoria erupt in the side with the shooting guard guiding the side to three wins in a row.
This is just the game where Danny Green makes for a must have pick. The Lakers man will get heavily engaged in by his side today with the team sending out a new look team for its culminating encounter.
And with 11 points the last time around, Green showed how he can send down the off handed shots to see him be our pick from the club.
His 25 point game ended up winning the Lakers their contest against Denver the last time around. In what was a sensational show of gallantly and girt, Kyle Kuzma showed that he can be counted as a regular starter to see the small forward be an instant pick for today.
20 ppg and 6 rpg this season allude towards Harrison Barnes’ attributes. The small forward has a quirky skill set, one which has seen him become a lethal name inside the paint with his jump shots and ability to latch onto the second chance points.
The one area where the Kings will hurt the Lakers is in the three point department. The club is one of the most efficient triple delivering contingent owing to Nemanja Bjelica who holds the highest conversion rate at a staggering 42%.
He’s been slowly eased out of his side’s soiree but the bubble has accorded Dwight Howard some much needed chances. And he’s managed to fare off reasonably well in them as well with his points in the paint seeing him close out our Dream 11 team for today.
His gargantuan 26.3 ppg mean we didn’t have to look anywhere other than James for our star player pick while Kuzma is the pro player.
